    take the normal train

    by tanneddarling Written Nov 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    there are 2 train stations in palma de mallorca.

    one has only one route and is the start off point for the tourist train to soller

    the other is the normal train station (metro like service)

    you have to look for this station - there were building works going on when we were there and we had to look for the entrance. you have to go underground to board the train - but the line rises above ground shortly after leaving the station.

    you can see quite a lot of mallorca by taking the train. we took it to manacor via inca. it only cost 3.50 for a single ticket (adult)
    manacor was a little village and really there wasn´t much to do but walk around. there are a few pearl factories nearby - and there are more things open in the summer - but when we went (in november) it was pretty much deserted.

    we took the bus back to palma (which was MUCH QUICKER) and went direct via the motorway. it was more expensive and was just over 5 euros each. it arrives at the bus station - which is just beside the train station that we set off from.

    we travelled in a sort of triangle and managed to see a lot of the INSIDE of the island in a few hours.

    Astonishing view of the city...U cannot miss it!

    View from Naburguesa

    Around 4 km to the north of the city begins the Sierra Tramuntana. But in this particular place the name it has is serra Naburguesa, The highest point is Naburguesa hill located in the small neighborhood of Genova.
    In the top of this hill there is a statue to Naburguesa a local religiuos saint.

    U can go using 2 different ways. I U go from the center of Palma, U should go to the Via Cintura and then when U see the sign to Genova, then turn right. If U are not in the center of the city but near the Via Cintura in the outskirts. Then just follow the Via Cintura at it will take U straight to Genova neighborhood.

    One advice. If U are on bike as I have done, be prepared for a huge climbing. There are around 3km unitl the top wiith and average of 15% degrees of inclination or maybe more.

    From this place U'll enjoy one of the best viewa of the city. U can even see the Bellver Castle in the distance.

    Naburguesa statue

    This is the statue on the top of Naburguse hill, on Genova neighborhood. It's huge, it must be around 20 meters high or more.

    Many people when they think of Palma, they think mostly of nice beaches.
    Well, there's much more to Palma than that...it has some fantastic mountain landscapes, especially Formentor (not in the pic)
